Epigenetics research aims to understand how a single genomic DNA sequence can generate and maintain the extraordinary diversity of cell identities and functions that comprise the adult organism. Modifications of DNA and chromatin and the binding of other molecules provide a gene-regulatory layer that modulates gene activity states, so that one genome gives rise to several “epigenomes”.
We are looking for PhD students! We offer 3-year fixed-term positions within the EU-funded Innovative Training Network (ITN) “PEP-NET – Predictive Epigenetics: Fusing Theory and Experiment” coordinated by Prof. Leonie Ringrose. PEP-NET provides an excellent scientific environment in leading research institutions across Europe and outstanding network-wide as well as individual training opportunities.
